"Basketball was my first love," said Abbott. "I've grown to love football now and I have about 30 scholarship offers right now."

"I'm being recruited as an offensive tackle but I'm going to be playing defensive tackle this year. My favorites right now are Georgia, Michigan, Auburn, Clemson, LSU and Cincinnati," added Abbott.

"I love Georgia right now but I'm going to take my visits before I make a commitment."

All favorites have offered a scholarship to Abbott, and rightfully so. Most recruiting experts consider him to be one of the top offensive tackle prospects in the southeast this year.

He's got outstanding size for a rising senior, yet he also has suprisingly quick feet for a prospect his size. The 6-9, 340 pound athlete keeps in shape by playing basketball, but he will likely concentrate his efforts on the gridiron at the next level.
